Lastly, Gadget Xchange is not considered insurance, therefore, standard insurance policies do not apply. This allows us to provide device switch and replacement without the need for any documentation.
Each customer is only entitled to subscribe to the program for a maximum period of 48 months. This means that a device can be covered by Gadget Xchange for up to 48 months. After 48 months in the program, customers will automatically be opted out.
You can cancel your subscription anytime via the following:
- Text keyword: GEX (monthly fee) 24 OFF
- Globe store

Take note that, once opted out:
- The monthly fee will not be prorated (no refunds), and therefore, will still be billed for the whole month
- You’ll no longer be able to file a claim starting the next billing period.
- You may no longer re-enroll your device in Gadget Xchange
If you cancel your subscription, you’re not allowed to apply again using the same account and/or device.
Our replacement devices are refurbished or good-as-new. Rest assured, these replacement devices are of good quality and are covered by a 12-month warranty from Bolttech.
